Chair’s Welcome

I am delighted as Chair of the Friends to welcome you to our website. Bushy Park and Home Park are two wonderful large green oases in the south west corner of London. Feeling wild, they are natural places with ancient histories, fascinating heritage and superb wildlife. Both are Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) containing rare species. These are places to be enjoyed and conserved. Which is why the Friends exist, campaigning, supporting and protecting the parks, and enhancing visitors’ enjoyment with information, advice and guidance.

We are always pleased to receive feedback. You can contact us by clicking here.

Threat to Park policing

The Royal Parks police, already at minimum strength in Bushy Park, face possible further cuts as a result of new funding arrangements. We urgently need Friends’ members and all those who care about the park to write to Mike Penning, the Policing Minister, expressing your concern at the situation.

We have already written a formal FBHP letter but individual personal letters also have a big influence.

You can find more detail in this document about the Threat to policing in Bushy Park and in this Briefing paper on Richmond and Bushy Park Policing.

You can find guidelines for your own letter here . Please make the letters as individual as possible.
